Is anyone among you sick? He should call in the church elders (the spiritual guides). And they should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Lord’s name. And the prayer [that is] of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. – James 5:14-15 (AMP)

Our loving and ever compassionate Father wants to take your wounds, pains, hurts, sorrows and heal your soul. He desires that we all be free from past hurts. His desire is that we be set free from the enemy; using the power given to break every chain and stronghold which keeps us bound and not living in freedom.

God has an amazing purpose for our lives.

Through prayer, we are able to gain strength in the and through Holy Spirit of Promise as well learn how to effectively fight our spiritual battles. Each battle we face offers opportunity for growth while unveiling the enemy’s deception and lies.

The enemy of our soul hides issues, conflicts, arguments and false reasonings in our hearts to keep us in bondage so that we are deceived in believing that we are free. The stronghold of fear along with spirits of inheritance, pride, generational curses, wicked spirits, incantations and powers lay in wait for their opportunities to destroy us. There is a real enemy out there. It is not the people who hurt you or did shameful and disgusting things to break you down. They were pawns being used to steal your life. They were assigned to destroy you. Satan is relentless in his pursuit to steal, kill and destroy you. From the very beginning God called you for a great purpose:

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11

According to 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5: “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” This scripture MUST be a part of what I call your “truth value.”

Truth value.

Your truth value is how you perceive, recognize and determine what you stand for. It’s the “you” of who you are. In essence it is what your belief systems grows from. It is of supreme importance to recognize that we all have the ability to challenge every thought that arises which tries to hold us in bondage to our past. As thoughts of our past mistakes, lost dreams, indiscretions, abuse, and misfortune surface in our minds, it is our responsibility to analyze them and see if there are areas in our lives that still need to come under submission to the Lordship of Christ.

Your weapon of warfare is prayer.

It is THE effectual fervent (intense of feeling; zealous * emphasis added) prayer of a righteous man availeth much as stated in James 5:16. Every weapon the enemy has used against you can be rendered useless through the powers of prayer confession along with your willingness to submit all to the throne of Christ Jesus. In your prayer time is where God will comfort you with the truth of who He created you to be. It will provide you supernatural insight on the plans He has for you life, and enlighten you on the areas where the enemy still has a foothold.

The power of positive thinking and affirming the word of God has tremendous effects on your psyche. Memorizing Isaiah 26:3 (AMP version) and making it a part of your “truth value” will assist you when negative thoughts from your past arise to keep you in bondage:

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.”

Keep your mind on Christ and allow the power of the word – the living truth of the living God – to set you free. This is where your belief system begins: in your mind. It begins by acknowledging the truth about yourself and casting those concerns and cares upon the Lord. It begins by allowing Him alone to sustain you. Our job is to remain in order, and our houses (minds and hearts) to be swept clean.

It’s important to remember this journey takes patience and there are no quick fixes. Deliverance is not a one time occurrence, yet a continual process, a daily cleaning through transforming our minds, will, emotions, and constantly lining our lives up with the word of God. It must be taken into account that God has said with faith there will be nothing impossible for you, but please note, in the latter part of Matthew 17:21 it states, “but this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting”. There are certain types of battles that you will fight and will only receive victory through prayer and fasting. I recommend researching this area and seeking God for the assistance of the Holy Spirit as you seed to be set free completely and fully.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come before your throne of mercy and grace asking that you forgive me for placing my worth in the hands and mouths of others; I ask that you restore my true self.

Give me a new paradigm of self-worth and remove all thoughts and feelings associated with low and false expectations of self. Set me free from spirits of inferiority and insecurity as I begin to delight in your truths concerning my life. I thank you that I was created in your image and likeness; I thank you that you have been mindful of me, creating me a little lower than the angels and crowning me with glory and honor. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are your works and I am one of them. I thank you that you have made me your daughter setting me apart for your purpose.

Restore my personal parameters of power, self-worth and virtue. I loose every ill word spoken against me, every idle word that has been contrary to your word concerning me, my life, and my purpose in the earth. I loose negative stigmas and thoughts that would hinder me from receiving your truths about who I am. I decree and declare that every lying tongue is wrong and that the truth concerning my life shall prevail in the name of Jesus! Amen.

According to Funtivia.com, in the U.S., the earliest risers are people in their prime earning years; one-third or more of those aged 30-59 are out of bed by 6 a.m.

For most, blissful sleep is interrupted by the insidious honking of an alarm and silenced with a quick hit of the snooze button. During that additional ten minutes of sleep, many find their minds beginning to race and mentally create an agenda for the day. With an already racing mind of listed tasks, random thoughts, even perhaps stressful conversations that need some form of resolution – morning solitude and serenity is slipping away…

Dawning of a new day

Dawning of a new day

In ancient biblical times, the rising of the sun signaled the end of night and relief from concerns, and the approach of daylight provided opportunity for renewed daily activity. The light of dawn following darkness was a symbol of hope and vindication. According toNehemiah 4:21 and 8:3, important activity begins at dawn; no wonder many of us are wrought with distraction before sunrise. Those early morning hours provide opportunity for action filled prayers to radically shift our current circumstance and breakthrough in the lives of those whom we pray for.

Perhaps you have tried rising early for prayer and devotional time hoping to invoke feelings of serenity and clarity for a more productive day. Yet, only to find it impossible with a racing mind and anxiety creeping in time is slipping away with every wandering and drifting thought.

Without surrendering your white flag, you begin to read books and listen to audios on how to jam seven hours into three in an attempt to become more efficient for “me” and family time. You up your intake of vitamins and supplements, temporarily change your eating habits and join the gym… all attempting to continue ironing your shero/hero cape and not relent. Yet, feelings of fatigue, low energy, occasional mood swings and irritability have now become a part of your personality while stress and thoughts of depression are knocking at the door for permanent residency.

The Solution

In the search of happiness, fulfillment, security, financial stability, career advancement and other personal goals, true focus and intention can get lost. With so many distractions; a lack of direction and/or definite purpose, daily stressors, family responsibilities, demands of co-workers, expectations of others, and personal ambitions, our judgment gets cloudy leaving some in a standstill of hazy mental fog.

Lack of serenity skills to assist with balancing the surge of raging emotions that for some swing like pendulum; unfortunately resulting in the inability to focus and remain grounded. Adding overcare masked in “goodwill” to already jam-packed schedule can cause even greater complications and emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical strain.

This “strain” is the emotional baggage (knapsack) causing tension, headaches, fatigue, irritability and more. Trying to rearrange your day, adding supplements, vitamins and the like only temporarily mask the symptoms of what your body and spirit are trying to tell you. Burnout and exhaustion have arrived and if not tended, the toxicity from uncontrolled emotions can have catastrophic effects in the spirit, soul and body.

Your spirit eventually becomes weighed down which can leave feelings of doubt, insecurity and anxiety.Proverbs 12:25 provides a timely reminder that we should not allow anxiety to take root as it can “weigh us down”. Today we see more and more commercials for medications to treat the symptoms of depression. Depression has been commonly referred to as the “common cold” of mental illness sending more and more to see their primary care physicians for help.

Morning Glory

Morning Glory is a serenity skill that I have developed in preparation for daily devotional time. It provides a guide quiet the “white noise” or clear mental fog while learning to live a life of love and appreciation. It can provide some basics to develop compassion for self and others while building coherence between the heart and mind. Using the power of mindfulness meditation can assist with soul healing the soul while releasing toxic emotions.

Keeping in mind that we are three-part beings (spirit, soul and body), every part of you is connected. If you have a tense mind (which resides in your soul), you have a tense body.

Optimal results are achieved when allowing at least 20 minutes to perform The Morning Glory Serenity in the morning prior to your personal devotional time. It will assist you with clearing the clutter and the random thoughts that try to invade your mind as you seek wisdom in asking the Lord God to establish your thoughts and steps for the day.

Transformation take away

Remember, consistency is the key. The more consistent you are with other spiritual activities (attending church services, praying regularly, etc.) along with serenity skills such as Morning Glory, you can greatly reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm.

Morning Glory Serenity has the potential to bridge the gap between your heart and mind. Creating a daily routine will assist with replacing fear, worries, and anxieties with love and compassion.
